Will city council change date for 'Trick or Treat' night because of LCHS football game?

LOUISA, Ky. -- Louisa City council members have missed having the regular council meeting last Tuesday and an attempt to have a special meeting Thursday did not produce a quorum so the council has not had the opportunity to discuss changing 'Trick or Treat' night this year or any of the other items on the agenda.

Council member Gloria Johnson said she has had several inquiries about changing the date from Halloween night on Friday, Oct. 31 because of a conflict with the last regular season LCHS football game, which will be 'Senior Night' for the 14 Bulldog seniors on this year's team.

"We set 'Trick or Treat' way before this came up," Johnson said. "It will be difficult to change the dates because the city of ft. Gay and Lawrence County have set their dates with ours."

Deputy city clerk Rita Rose also said today that changing the dates will be difficult because plans have been made and "it is pretty late to be changing it now.'

But the city council will attempt to have a special meeting this Thursday to decide what to do on the issue. "There are a lot of things that need to be addressed, so the council really needs to meet this week," said Rose, who is a former city council member herself. 

As is is now trick or Treat is scheduled for 5-7pm on Friday night and the football game is at 7:30. Rose said several people have complained that the congestion that Trick or Treat and the large crowd expected for the football game will be a hindrance to both events.

"Some want it changed to Saturday night and some want it changed to Thursday night and some want it to stay like it is," Rose added. "You can't please everyone all the time so the council will need to make a decision based on what is best for the kids and their parents and the general public."
